Barcelona is reportedly reluctant to spend more than € 15 m ( £ 13.49 m) on the Manchester City defender Eric Garcia.
While Pep Guardiola has recently given incentives to the 19-year-old, the prospect does not want to sign a new contract at the Etihad Stadium.
This produced the chance to return to Camp Nou, where he spent most of his youth days before moving to England.
However, according to ESPN, the runners-up in La Liga and the Premier League remain very far apart about a ranking.
Barcelona is only willing to pay half of that amount to guarantee a meeting with its former academy star, despite the reportedly asking for £27 m from Barcelona.
The city will need to re-evaluate its position later in the summer to prevent losing Garcia next year on a free transfer.
